Running in the Corridors by Ann Thwaite
This book, with an introduction by Penelope Lively, brings together for the first time seven short stories by the prize-winning biographer, Ann Thwaite. The backgrounds include Wellington in New Zealand, Basra in Iraq and, in several stories, South Norfolk in England.
Reviewers of her books have commented: ‘Highly readable… the Thwaite style is irresistible.’ ‘Beautifully written and compelling to read.’ ‘She writes faultlessly; her tone is warm and wise.’
Ann Thwaite has published over 30 books, both fiction and fact, including the Whitbread Biography of the Year, A. A. Milne: his life. She lives in Norfolk with the poet Anthony Thwaite.
